Born in Sgo del Estero, Argentina, Daniel Abdala is an electronic musician, composer, producer, guitar/bass player, and singer. Turvia is his main project. It began in 2005, as an industrial-rock oriented band but it evolved forward to become an electronic solo project, with influences of noise, ambient music, synth-pop, experimental and a touch of gothic/esoteric art. His music is trippy, with elements such as mid-tempos, raw landscapes, and twisted voices, but all warped in ethereal melodies....

More particularly, tradition and its authenticity and spontaneity in the context of orality seem somehow to have been mutilated and reconstructed, as soon as globalization and multiculturalism became one of the dominant discourses during the 21st century. Folk songs haven’t been an exclusion in this particular case, as revivalism and folklorism have emerged as a devastating force in the production...

Gomon is the product of cold city sounds, which is mixed with guitar riffs and chthonic myths. The music of this project is a search for the atmosphere in the world of dreams for a breath of fresh air. The first album Kenoma comes from the faceless emptiness of human nature. We praise the biological body, its voice, its movements, which is decorated by plastic and metal. We bathe in post-rock among the stars, listen to the folk-echoes of our ancestors and descend into the depths of the...

Known (or not-known) for attention to detail in his compositions and a lo-fi approach and aesthetic in creating music, Yaws makes rhythmic soundscapes, exploring long and expanding improvisations through repetition, static and noise. Taking influence from artists such as HTRK, Deutsch Nepal, Coil, and Craig Leon, his music is an incessant, yet subtle perpetual groove which intends to tap into a rhythmic continuum which transcends the listener.

“Utterings” is Lezet’s attempt at fake languages and sound poetry which should in this case lean toward the musical rather than the semantic. This offering is somewhat limited by content creator’s Indo-European language background and the phonetic peculiarities of his native language (Serbo-Croatian/ Croato-Serbian), but the texts and the readings should prove to be interesting and amusing enough in themselves.  Any actual words used are unintentional.  “Utterings” the third...

The sophomore effort by a duo of old friends is a collaboration as much as it is a split release. It documents a radical departure from the sounds and approaches hitherto associated with Djozr and Lezet, and ventures into dangerously new terrains for both artists. But even despite this, the split feels more like a unified body of work than a mere collection of new songs.  djozr (d͡ʒoʊ.zɹ) is an ambient drone glitch project by Glenn Bryce.  Lezet is an experimental music project from...
